One of the more popular combinations I hear about is SPL outer with Z32/Z33 inner. They are suppose to be considerably stronger than stock 240 rods.
I haven't had anything but Tein which are essentially stock so I can't back that up, but it's a good place to start your research.

I'm looking forward to see if anyone got video of this beast sliding!

New parts arrived sometime last week so i tore the car down.
Current manifold is 6.025 inches tall
Image
New manifoled is 4.05 inches tall but needs some serious port wrok.
Image
First step is to arch out all the tops to match.
Image
Just doing a gasket match for now. maybe more serious this winter if the motor lives for the year. :twisted:

No wing looks really clean, that wing in my opinion doesn't flow very well.

The wing looks slightly rally-car-esque but also looks like something I'd expect to see in a Youtube video from Japan.

I like the wing. And I usually hate any raised plastic/fiberglass wing.
But that one looks good.

Looks good.

I personally would go wingless with a roof spoiler or a GT, but that wing doesn't look bad at all.
